Vladimir Ilyich Lenin was all about social justice, ended in over 70 years of terror, war, exile, torture, deathcamps, etc. Countless millions died and the effects are still hard to shake off several generations later not only in my country but the whole region.

It is always good to reflect upon oneself and accept criticism. Why do you say dead trans people, is it worse than just laughing at dead people? Hypocrisy is a deadly trap, just look at a very famous SJW who ruined half the world and killed millions back in 1917

Good to see people standing up to those misogynist creeps. Are there any feminist groups in attendance?

p.s. since my comments seem to be mysteriously disappearing and narrenloser in his infinite shit-dom decided that I "don't care about muslim women", I'd like to append this post with the reason for my rather emotional disgust with islam.

My (formerly) muslim friend turned to alcoholism when she was in middle school because of her stupid fucking muslim parents. She was non-binary and queer, but the fucked up religion her parents shoved down her throat gave her extreme anxiety and depression that caused her to drink. She would show up to class dead-eyed and smelling of gin because of fucking islam. It wasn't until years later that she went to university that she had the courage to come out as queer and reject her parents religion. You don't know a god damned thing about islam or how it affects women. Islam is fucking patriarchal garbage, it should be smashed right alongside every other bullshit bigoted religion.

p.p.s. I honestly just do not understand how anyone who opposes misogyny, heterosexism, and hierarchy can possibly defend this religion. It's practically an amalgamation of everything we as anarchists are seeking to abolish.

Not by itself, but the koran does. It rivals even the bible in its advocacy of violent misogyny, and hierarchy in general.

According to the koran, men are a degree above women, and should have more rights than them.

2:228 "Women have rights similar to those (of men) over them in kindness, and men are a degree above them. Allah is Mighty, Wise."

According to the koran, it's cool to lock up promiscuous women until they die.

4:15 As for those of your women who are guilty of lewdness, call to witness four of you against them. And if they testify (to the truth of the allegation) then confine them to the houses until death take them or (until) Allah appoint for them a way (through new legislation).

According to the koran, it's cool to marry your slaves. Oh, and to have slaves, of course.

4:25 And whoso is not able to afford to marry free, believing women, let them marry from the believing maids whom your right hands possess.

According to the koran, men are in charge of women, because women are dumb and men are smart and strong and stuff. According to the koran, good women obey men, and if they don't, you should whip them.

4:34 Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.

[–]WickedSisterPaulinas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My race response formed when the visages of Martin Luther & Coretta King and black Secret Serviceman Abraham Bolden, turned up in the Moorman shot taken at the assassination of John Kennedy, in Dallas Tx. Nov. 22, 1963.

The LK's had been Mrs Kennedy's dinner guests in her home at the White House just weeks before.

While Bolden makes much of his claim to be the first black on the Secret Service Presidential Security Detail.

Harry 53 yo Air Force vet who requested loud music be turned off at 11 pm Sunday night, knifed to death by his black neighbor been in Australia two weeks from South Africa.

I say all three cases demonstrate the folly of treating blacks like human beings, tolerating them as neighbors, or employing them in any capacity whatever!

Race not Color: Hoera Te Kooti was murdered by fifteen blacks in Queensland, Australia 1999.

Fancy lawyers prevented a jury seeing security video showing their black hands rifling the dying man's pockets, resulting in the acquittal of the single assailant charged - Anticipate hundreds of hangin's in response.

Tamils who waged terror war in Sri Lanka have been granted safe passage in Australia, they are causing the same trouble here they caused there, and are blaming inherent racism!

Tamil woman in supermarket deli breathes heavily into the bag of fish, a couple flecks of spittle land in the bag, she wraps it up, throws it onto the counter and stalks off.

Next time there another one of the black ----- took a knife from a rack and plunged it into a stack of cardboard boxes, I interpreted his actions as a death threat!

The message to all of the snarling staring black ----- is the same, be no closer than one rifle shot to me and my household at any time!

Most white people don't hear about the shootings until it is reported

You mean most people don't hear about it until it's reported. Black people don't have a "shooting sense" that tingles when someone of their skin color gets killed by police.

It takes a riot and the coverage it brings to make it sink in just how big of a problem there is...

I agree, a problem is judged by the negative consequences it causes. None of this has anything to do with "white people", though.

François Duvalier:


François Duvalier (French pronunciation: ​[fʁɑ̃swa dyvalje]; 14 April 1907 – 21 April 1971), also known as ‘Papa Doc’ Duvalier, was the President of Haiti from 1957 to 1971. He opposed a military coup d'état in 1950 and was elected as President in 1957 on a populist and black nationalist platform. His rule, based on a purged military, a rural militia known as the Tonton Macoute, and the use of a personality cult, resulted in the murder of an estimated 30,000 Haitians and the exile of many more.

The author is saying that "white people" don't care about black people getting shot by police but they do care about store windows being smashed. Therefore, one entrepreneurial young black person has decided to wear a convenience store window on his chest, thus any attempt to shoot him in his center of mass will result in the shattering of said window. And yet all I see on reddit, tumblr, and facebook is white people being outraged by black people being shot by police.

I think this is kinda bs to say that's the only way white people care about minority deaths...

Not destroy and loot innocent small businesses which are the back bone to our civil existence.

I think the drug war is the best example of the problems of statist authoritarianism. Jail? For smoking a plant? You're that much of a control freak that people can't smoke plants? O wait, they can smoke one plant, but not that plant? Wat.jpeg.

I'll have to read more about the benefit to come up with an informed opinion on it.

My problem with the minimum wage is two fold. First, it is very rarely tied to inflation and price increases, so as time goes on it stops being livable, but people have this inertia against changing it for various reasons, so it is viewed as a protection, when really making 7.15/hr is oppression. Second, I think it prevents people from unionization because they think the government has their back when in reality it's just another mechanism of oppression. Unionized worker pay has largely kept up with inflation, whereas the minimum wage has not. Just my two cents.

But I do like some of the things I'm seeing

Off the top of my head ?

Ron Paul thinks homosexuality is immoral. I disagree

Ron Paul thinks gays shouldn't adopt. I disagree.

Ron Paul thinks drugs are immoral. I disagree.

Ron Paul seems to want private companies to run schools, I want community organizations to run schools.

I used to disagree with him on the death penalty but then he changed his mind: "You know over the years, I’ve held pretty rigid to all my beliefs but I’ve changed my opinion about the death penalty. For federal purposes, I no longer believe in the death penalty. I believed it has been issued unjustly. If you are rich you get away with it. If you’re poor and you’re from the inner city, you’re more likely to be prosecuted and convicted. And today, with the DNA evidences there’s been too many mistakes, so I am now opposed to the federal death penalty."

I used to disagree with him on environmental policy, but now I'm having trouble rectifying how I feel about government, with how I feel about the environment, with the reality of the EPA, etc etc. Now I just say I don't have a well formed opinion on that.

The thing I like about Ron Paul is that he might not like something you do, but he will defend your right to do it. For example Ron Paul supports gays getting married if they can find a church that will do it. If you wanna smoke pot all day he won't stop you. The man seems to want to be president, so he can leave everyone the fuck alone.

Schools are part of the state, the state (by definition) wants to steal your freedom, and freedom is a good thing. So state schools indoctrinate children to believe in the state, a belief they carry to adulthood, at which point they enrolltheir children in state schools, and the cycle of serfdom begins anew.

Ron Paul. Sounds pretty anti state to me.

So I'm not allowed to have a positive experience with police? I've been raided. SWAT teams and the militarization of police are terrible, but ALL cops are evil? Yeah right. By calling all cops evil you're alienating potential allies. Only Sith deal in absolutes

People posted that they agreed with my "MRA talking points" are you going to ban them too?

Ron Paul says some anarchist shit sometimes and for the things we agree on we're allies. Both Rand Paul and Bernie Sanders want to fight the patriot act and they will work together to do so. Not supporting everyone in their efforts on this is unproductive.

I was pro choice until the pregnancy. Why would you ban me for sharing my life experiences?

Do cops in prison not experience a harder time? The point of prison should be to reform people, not to punish them.

Yes I posted on chans during my self imposed exile. The anonymous structure allows for conversations that could not be had otherwise. For example, right now my account is in threat of being banned largely for speaking my mind on controversial subjects. An unwounded hand can hold poison. An educated mind can entertain an idea without agreeing with it. I view my time on the chans as a growth experience. I didn't know there were African-Americans who were against AA. I was unaware of many of Trotsky's arguments. I highly suggest anyone with an open mind check it out. You can ignore the trolls. 4chan taught me how to filter my water in the woods.

Also /u/Capn_Blackbeard still has yet to respond to my source showing that deer eat birds and are somewhat omnivorous. All I wanted to do is speak in good faith, he chose to call me names. Who's really toxic?

By silencing me you're just turning into oppressors yourself. You're just becoming another Robespierre. All voices should be heard.

Since it is likely I will be banned, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the people who spoke in good faith and desired to come to a productive understanding. I look forward to our continued conversations elsewhere and hope you will assist me in smashing the hug box and opening the minds of others to ideas yet considered.

You claim I haven't read the article despite the fact that I'm reading through it and then you just go and make things worse by not reading through my post and making completely contradictory statements about what I've written.

"But the acts of oppression you have perpetrated on the women around you do not support these claims."

"Being the compassionate sistas we are, we made the effort (and it takes A LOT of emotional and psychological effort) to talk with you about your sexist behaviour. And time and time again, you’ve shocked us with the level of violence and force, verbal and physical, that you employ against us in a desperate attempt to silence our challenge to your male activist egos."

Come on, really? That's not patronising? I've also never said I'm against the idea of women being treated with respect and allowed to be human beings. To do so is pretty dishonest on your part, the point I'm making is that women like this instead of trying to create an equal environment they're in fact doing the opposite without even realising it.

If you're just going to ignore all of this then fine, but I'm not going to debate you if you just make up what I've actually written in public rather than actually read it. I also find it pointless even trying to get along with people who are just wannabe Anarchists that don't even seem to understand it's all about anti-authoritarianism and not about supporting your favourite side no matter what they get up to.

Seems to me that they're insinuating an awful lot that because I have a penis I'm somehow opressing them which is pretty funny because I hardly do a thing to women, what the fuck does me chatting about Anarchism and playing computer games do to re-inforce the Patriarcy? lol.

I was genuinely wondering what other Anarchists ( yes even communists ) thought of this kind of attitude? As a white guy I'm struggling to read through this dismissive and patronising article but I'm willing to give it a fair shot and while I see the point they're making about gender roles essentially being about social peer pressure which I do agree with as usual it's ruined by a lot of ignorant comments about men in general.

However, you can't all seriously support the idea that a lot of these women who frankly promote blatant misandry and the idea of taking all the higher positions over means that they'll somehow do things better can you?

We're all Anarchists, surely we should be against simply replacing one hiearchy for another? These women who claim to be feminists are trying to establish a matriarchy and spread their hatred of men to other people, they're the very mirror image of the system they claim to hate so much.

if you're an Anarcho-Feminist that cares about men as well as women and simply wants them all to treated with respect and equality that's great. However if you're wanting to be independent and go your own way? Don't come bitching to me about how life is tough, you can't always have all the good things in life and being truly independent is never the easiest option.

Don't make the mistake so many make of fighting over which master to serve, it shows you don't understand what Anarchism is about, yes, there is sexism and yes we should put a stop to it, but simply replacing one sexism for another is a stupid idea.

Private Property IN SPACE! "Any asteroid resources obtained in outer space are the property of the entity that obtained such resources, which shall be entitled to all property rights thereto, consistent with applicable provisions of Federal law." (x-post /r/space) by d_rudy in Anarchism

[–]izagig -7 points-6 points  (0 children)

Property is derived from work. If you put work into something you own it. If I make a bench in the woods, it's my bench. I'm willing to share my bench, but it's my bench. If you fuck with my bench, I will stab you. Don't fuck with my bench. Why does this not extend to asteroids?

/u/d_rudy hey, I'm temporarily banned because /u/Capn_Blackbeard, a member of the anarchism oligarchy would rather witch hunt than rationally debate. But I wanted to respond by saying that if EM drive is confirmed, and reports from China and NASA seem to be confirming. We might be able to go to space with Go-kart level technology. We still need to wait, but it might be possible to build space ships for $200,000 in 20 years. Combine that with 3D printing and I think you see where I'm going with this. My fear with excessive government intervention in space is that I won't be able to take my bench to an asteroid, because some government bureaucrat has a stick up their ass.

Google disagrees.

Feminism: the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

Why not just call it egalitarianism?

Good article.

I don't like that we don't just support egalitarianism. Feminism only fights for women when men suffer as well under the "patriarchy." Advocating for women and not men is anti-intersectionality.

When I'm with my daughter I get strange looks from women, as if a man can't be involved in their child's life. One woman called the cops on me insisting I was "grooming " my daughter (she kissed me on the cheek) and that I was a pedophile. I had to spend half an hour talking to police for taking my daughter to the park. The whole time my daughter is bawling "let me see my daddy, where's my daddy?" Then I get to explain to her why the lady called the cops.

Men are disproportionately likely to die a violent death.

Stay at home dads are looked at with severe disdain.

Family courts tend to favor women.

Men are disproportionately in dangerous careers.

I could rant for a while. I'm a firm believer that Women and Men are complementary. (which will likely get me down votes) But the idea that Women have to be followers and Men must be leaders is toxic and unegalitarian.

You never addressed any of my points and now you're pretending I just said "nu'uh."

Once again, how was the earth so hot during the Jurassic era without man made climate change? Not only is the frame of reference merely a blip in the geological time frame, but the resolution of the data is not sufficient. If you don't understand these critiques, you are not qualified to have an opinion on the subject. Please directly address my other arguments in the previous comment

Your third article says almost certain in the title and none of your sources address my time resolution point. You're not arguing a position, you're just appealing to authority. If you can't understand climate science don't have an opinion on it. Notice how all of the warming periods have a high slope? Do you see how that is relevant to my time resolution argument? Did you know the earth was hotter when dinosaurs were around? How did the earth get so hot without man made climate change?

He didn't support an anti-sodomy law, he was against the bill because it lowered the penalty for rape. He explained why he opposed it in depth. I also pointed this out, in my previous comment. Not sure why you're bringing up a refuted point. Perhaps it's because you are bad at debating.

Why is Austrian economics predatory? I don't think you've really examined their position. Just stating things and posting sources isn't an effective way to communicate. You have to explain your position in depth.

So what would you as the benevolent dictator replace capitalism with?

My friend is the son of a crack whore. I don't appreciate you dismissing his accomplishments so flippantly. He saved up over ten weeks $10 at a time. He didn't eat 2 days a week just to do this. Now he makes 40k a year. He says he'll have the money for a second shop in about 5 years. You have to start somewhere. O, and all his employees make at least 75% of his salary.

Also radio shack's repair business went out of business, his did not. Co-operatively run companies WILL out perform capitalist run ones

this shit has nothing to do with men or white people in power. it's about power. the people in power want to keep power, they fuck everyone over. not just a specific group. slaves have been around since the dawn of time, it didn't matter if they were black or white. people enslaved their own people. so either racism/sexism goes both ways or they dont exist at all. people are assholes and push others down. it has nothing to do with race or sex.

At first, I was extremely defensive but the more she talked, the more I understood where she was coming from. I'd probably hate men too in her position. (She had a really rough life..rougher than most women)

And what if we take the reverse of that scenario. A man who hates all women because all throughout his life, he has been abused by women. Would you understand where he would be coming from? Or would you just label him as some sexist pig?

What are Brocialists and Manarchists? Sexists of the Radical Left. (x-post from r/CommunismWorldwide) by Adahn5 in Anarchism

[–]kaminskies -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That's my point. While in other parts of the world, women are treated in such a way, that there's a crystal clear advantage in being a man, you can't say the same for Western Europe and certain parts of North America. It's so far from black and white that you can't pin it down anywhere. It can include and exclude nearly everything. You can't directly fight it in the same way you can fight Racism and Capitalism. All you can say is "Look, outside of Racism and Capitalism, there are certain problems in other fields too. Don't look away when you see something going on that you don't agree with.", but you can't pin it down to "Patriarchy".

But I don't try to argue here, rather to be educated: In which attitudes and beliefs does it manifest itself? Other than "Women should stay at home!" and "Men shall earn the income!", which are really obvious.

[–]kaminskies 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Please help me then. I am an anarchist and I oppose Capitalism as well as any other form of hierarchy, wherever I see it. My problem ist that I see Capitalism. I see Racism, right in front of me. (I'm a white male, "native looking" so to say, in a Middle European country) I know where they came from, I know how to fight them. I see the problems women have because they're women... but I also see the problems I have because I'm a man.

My political circles sometimes even forget about Capitalism because they're so focused on Patriarchy, but... I just don't see it. I know about the past and about what happened since then. But there is this wage gap, which is one of the strongest arguments for the existence of Patriarchy, and then I take a look at the numbers and they don't add up. They (I mean the local statistics in my country, I have no valid opinion about those elsewhere) were even exposed as exaggerated, just by recalculating the data, by pro-Feminism journalists here. Instead of 20% less, it's within a fluctuation range of +/-2%, that means that theoretically the men may even earn less. There has yet to be one company exposed in "my" country, that pays less for the same work under the same conditions and with the same qualifications. I see big campaigns to stop violence at home against women, and then the data to it, that tells me that 40% is directed against men and the estimated number of unreported cases could be even a lot higher.

I see that men have to go to the army, and none of those feminists, that, as they say, are for equality, raise their voice against it. Hell, the debate they had was about anything, but not about the military draft being men-specific. I know that "Patriarchy" isn't meant to be nothing but positive for men, and that together we shall fight it. But then again, whenever Patriarchy is to be opposed, it is directed against random men, via "check your privilege!" and such. Then again it's about oppression of women, and while I see that women and men still sometimes play different roles, that are partly for reasons that lie within the society and partly because of natural reasons, with all their pros and cons, that is something that I see. But I see no "Patriarchy" that manifests itself like Racism or Capitalism do.

Sorry, I'm rambling now, but I just can't see it. I don't promote Patriarchy or anything that looks remotely similar to an aspect of Patriarchy when I see it, but I just don't get the concept of Patriarchy itself. It would be great if somebody could enlighten me. Seriously.

Have you checked out reddiquette yet?

Please do:

Remember the human.

Consider posting constructive criticism / an explanation when you downvote something

Please don't:

Be (intentionally) rude at all.

Conduct personal attacks on other commenters

Insult others.

Downvote an otherwise acceptable post because you don't personally like it.

Upvote or downvote based just on the person that posted it.

Create mass downvote or upvote campaigns. This includes attacking a user's profile history when they say something bad and participating in karma party threads.

Make comments that lack content. Phrases such as "this", "lol", and "I came here to say this" are not witty, original, or funny, and do not add anything to the discussion.

I'm sure you want to bash us bad guys, but why not do it well?

Edit - formatting.

I'm not hiding. I only use one account, and my comments are there for all to see. I don't consider myself a neolib, but I do consider myself a racist and a reactionary. I used to consider myself an anarchist (after Chomsky), but have had my mind changed quite a bit. It's been a wild ride.

I did think that subreddits are meant to group topics and not the identity of their subscribers. Which is a good thing, because some threads on r/Anarchism are still interesting to me, and I'll probably post here again.

I'll tell you one thing that you have in common with those other subreddits: They also know who is in their group, and who isn't, and aren't very tolerant of those outside.

Where am I back pedaling?

Just wanted to add as a general to everyone responding.

claims to be an anarchist

likely believes in affirmative action

/u/Capn_Blackbeard seems to have used his moderation influence to have me banned instead of responding to my source on deer eating baby birds during a conversation about how animals eat other animals, so I'm responding via edit until I can get this sorted out.

Actually I do understand what affirmative action is /u/boilerpunx. It's a system that damages minority communities. Look into Thomas Sowell if you want some good empirical evidence on the subject. He used to be a Marxist, he's just honestly looking at the data. It puts them in schools they're not qualified for, minorities who enter under AA programs perform significantly below average in college. It bars qualified minority candidates from certain positions, if Boeing can only get 10% black material scientists, they'll only hire 10% black janitors, even if 30% of the applicants are black. Now those people don't have jobs.

Seriously, honestly and critically look into this. I used to think exactly like you, then I broke my hug box. If you spend all day reading people who agree with you, you'll never progress as a person.

Please explain where I back pedaled.

Retarded is a slang word for stupid or foolish and among other things a good way to describe adolescent racists because they are slow and limitation in intellectual understanding and awareness. Or are they not?

Thank you for your link, we often don't think about weight that our words can carry, but implying that I was oppressive to anyone is plain ridiculous idea. And I can say ridiculous because that site you linked told me so.

I love being told what I can and what I can't say. It makes anarchist inside of me giggle of joy, almost as much as when I'm oppressing mentally challenged people or asking orphans where their parents are. Good times.

Well, there are all sorts of radical programmers who get together to make things that are beneficial to others and then give it away for free.
